Summer is a great time for light deserts. I created this desert a long time ago on a hot day in Idaho.  This recipe will be in the next cookbook.

Simple Easy!!

1 box of yellow cake mix
3 ripe bananas for the cake
1 banana for the filling
2 cups heavy whipping cream – more or less to your taste
Powdered sugar

Follow the cake mix recipe with this change.  Mash the bananas and add them to the eggs, oil and water that the recipe calls for. Mix the wet ingredients together and then add to the mix.  Mix the batter as per recipe and bake following the directions in layer pans
After baking cool the cake layers. When you are ready to serve mix your whipping cream with three tablespoons powdered sugar + 1 teaspoon good vanilla. Whip to soft peaks.  Using the whipping cream, frost the first layer and then slice the last banana and place on top before adding the top layer of cake.  Add the top layer and frost with the rest of the whipped cream.  If you do this ahead, put the cake in the refrigerator to chill. 
You can also cut the layer in half and do a multilayer cake.  If you do slice the banana thinly so that the cake has stability.
Let me know if you try this.  It is one of my go to deserts for picnics and lats minute parties.
